The Carleton-Kirk Church is one of Saint John’s most historic places of worship. In the 1970’s, church and community came together, recognizing the need for affordable housing. In a few short years, they had successfully provided housing to seniors, and soon thereafter incorporated round-the-clock nursing care.
Carleton-Kirk Lodge is a 70-bed long-term care facility providing care for individuals nineteen years of age and older. It is the only nursing home located on the West side of Saint John.
In December 2009, the Carleton Kirk Lodge Fund was established by an inaugural gift by Eileen and Gordon Boyd. The income from the Fund provides the nursing home with necessary funds to continue operation.
As our demographics change, there will be an increasing need for financial support to facilities which care for our aging population.
